9783905770056: The Best Surprise is No Surprise

Using an archive of electronic announcements distributed by e-flux, The Best Surprise is No Surprise documents significant recent developments in art-related media releases, which are now global, instantaneous and linked coming and going. Readers can track the dissemination of information about exhibitions, publications, events and symposia organized and selected by some of the most active international curators, artists, critics and art historians of our time. That information is accompanied by brilliant color images of the events themselves, so that the book becomes a resource documenting recent contemporary exhibitions as well as the evolution of their self-portrayal and promotion. With an introductory essay by Daniel Birnbaum, an interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and 250 e-flux announcements selected by Zdenka Badovinac, Ariane Beyn, Mircea Cantor, Binna Choi, Hedwig Fijen, Elena Filipovic, Liam Gillick, Jens Hoffmann, Eungie Joo, Samuel Keller, Francesco Manacorda, Viktor Misiano, Naeem Mohaiemen, Jessica Morgan, Molly Nesbit, Ernesto Neto, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Natasa Petresin, Brian Sholis, Nancy Spector, Christine Tohme, Tirdad Zolghadr and many more.
